Russell Westbrook, you are ridiculous. The Oklahoma City Thunder guard made the ludicrous look inhumanly easy Thursday night.

On the road as the Thunder took on the Toronto Raptors, Westbrook threaded the needle with an insane nutmeg bounce pass between the legs of Cory Joseph from halfway across the court. Victor Oladipo caught it in stride to finish of the magnificent play with two points.

Here’s the play that had our jaws on the floor.

Now check it out in slow motion. And watch it over, and over, and over again.

This level of precision is almost unbelievable.

Westbrook’s Thunder led by 10 points, 58-48 at the half in this one.
